. leaving that aside, if we get closer to parliamentary type of government. both sides went to extreme. if you're john boehner and may be more reasonable than the caucus and obama may be more reasonable than the caucus they can't get them to to it for bipartisanship. every year this is more polarized. >> eric: every president in the second term, most moved to the center. ronald reagan and bill clinton and george moving to center. this is going the other way. far left. >> the difference of this one versus a republican. view asked him what his favorite color was. we have video and audiotape of the press lining up the questions they were going to attack him with. i ask this and you ask that. hypocrisy over the way they treat the right and the left. >> dana: the truth is they don't think it's obama's fault. they think it started with president bush. >> greg: but a republican would find them as extremist. >> bob: house of representatives are the most polarized of all the caucuses. thank hillary clinton, benghazi, the division and the -- >> andrea: they should talk about the things we talk about

seeing cyber intrusions' both against our government and against private sector, but increasingly common on state actors will have more capacity to disrupt and to hack into put out false information to accuse the united states of things that can light five years before we can put them out. so, you know, i think it's important we have a really thoughtful comprehensive review about the threats of today and tomorrow and that will help guide the committee and the senate and the administration working together to answer them. >> thank you madam chair and onto something that hasn't been done. i'm going to yield back the rest of my time. >> we will not go to mr. perot of texas pittard >> thank you mr. chairman and madame secretary for your service to the country. gordon roland from oregon, frederick from texas and victor am i district of texas, three americans overseas killed not in benghazi, that killed at a remote gas facility in algeria. killed in my opinion because they were americans. over the last weekend, myself and others have tried to get information. i would say there's too muc

only consumer good that is not regulated by the federal government. there are actually more federal regulation on manufacturing bb guns than there are real guns, so it really is, you know, francly ridiculous when you look at it like that, and i think what you brought up of guns making it into the illegal market, which is a big problem, we have to realize that 40% of all gun sales in this country every year go unchecked. i mean, that's a really easy way for a legitimate gun to fall into the hands of an illegitimate person, and we need to fix that problem, and the president's proposals will do just that. >> let me bring in our wonderful panel here in new york. hans, harry reid is bringing to theoretically going to bring this legislation forward to the floor of the senate and open amendment process, which a lot of people think is going to fundamentally water down some of the provisions because basically everybody gets to throw their 2 cents in. your read on that and your sort of optimism with regard to real reform. >> well, most of those serious reform efforts right now will have a led

obsession with government bookkeeping. this is a rigged game, and it is the wrong game for us to play. >> and in a barely veiled reference to mitt romney and other republicans, jindal said republicans need to make it clear that they are a, quote, populous party. >> we must quit being -- we are not the party of big business, big banks, big wall street bailouts, big corporate looph e loopholes, or big anything. we must not be the party that simply protects the welloff, so they can keep their toys. >> nbc's senior political editor, mark murray is here, and he joins me now. and mark, it seems is if at any time a party gets thumped, they always have this come to jesus moment. we need to change what we've been doing before, we need to radically alter our strategy. reince priebus is going to say this to the rnc. "it's time to stop lacking at elections through the lens of battleground states. we have four years until the next presidential election, and being a blue state is not a permanent diagnosis. simple outreach a few months before an election will not suffice. in fact, let's stop talking
